Wear analysis of 39 conserve plus metal-on-metal hip resurfacing retrievals.

Abstract

There have been increasing concerns regarding adverse local tissue reactions (ALTR) following metal-on-metal (MOM) hip arthroplasties. This study examined wear rates in retrievals of one design of MOM resurfacing arthroplasty, and assessed the differences in wear between those with and without ALTR. Wear measurements were made on 39 MOM resurfacing… (More)
